Edgardo Vega's Blog Making it through the day one post at a time
According to Dan Farber, Microsoft make its next big bet on 'live software'; a new type of software experience. Gates said, It's about connecting users at the center, with relationships with people, data people care about, applications and all devices coming together to do things for you. Here are more blogs talking about it: Crunchnotes Microsoft Live ......

Check out Windows Live. At a quick glance, it looks like start.com.

I will be at PRE13 Patterns and Practices for Designing Service Oriented Applications,for the day. I am here with DonXML. Last night I had dinner at a tapas restaurant with Vin, Beat, Ron, Don, DonXML and Peter. Peter talks about the dinner and the first part of the session here. Dinner was a lot of fun with good company, good food, and good conversation. ......

Made it to LA. I have already stopped by the convention center and did my registration.



So I am officially on my way to my first PDC. I should be in LA by 1:00PM. If you want to meet up with me just contact me with your phone number and I will give you a call right back (if I can). Otherwise I will most likely be on the Don plan. PDC05 ......

After my last post, two people agreed with Chris. Here are their stories and I don't think I will have to make the commentary on this one. Jeremy Oh Chris, that sounds awfully familiar. At one point I was the"Architect" on 7 projects at one time. My solution for meeting hell was to jump to a company doing Agile development (flat team structure, more ......

This was left in my comments here and written by Chris Williams I've found that if you disagree with every single point made by anyone in the meeting, they tend to not invite you back. Of course, credibility suffers some... but you're left alone to do your work. The danger of this... is if you work somewhere that everyone thinks you are the smartest ......

I have found the solution to Meeting Hell, more holidays. Yesterday (Labor Day) was great because there were no meetings. It was also excellent, because meetings were already being cancelled, due to the long weekend. This event got me thinking. Why should a meeting be cancelled, due to the long weekend? The difference is only one work day. If the work ......

From my experience, most projects are already in Meeting Hell. So the next few posts will be focused on stopping meeting hell. These experience will hopefully not only come from me, but from the rest of the blogosphere. Remember to leave a comment or contact me, in order to share your stories. I have gone into several meetings and have had Person A ......

I have done a lot of project management, since graduation. I was thrilled to be put in that role for several projects. I have learned that nothing gets people more irritated then 'Meeting Hell'. I can tell you that as a project manger and as a team member 'Meeting Hell' irritates me equally as much. I define 'Meeting Hell' as going into one meeting ......

I found this hilarious! A 78-year-old woman was indicted on charges she killed her 85-year-old ex-boyfriend at the senior citizens home where they lived because he had been seeing another woman. The accused, Lena Sims Driskell, was charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Her ex-boyfriend, Herman ......

Doc Searls, in Wasting away again in Delayflightville, says that SBA is a 'little airport'. I would have to say that Doc is making it seem much bigger than it is. It is tiny. I have been there several times in the last year and half and I have yet to go to an airport that is smaller. Here is a map of the airport. Speaking of Santa Barbara, I will there ......
